Force Motors India has officially unveiled the 2024 Force Gurkha 4x4. It is essentially a longer-wheelbase version of the 3-door Gurkha with extra seats for more passengers. Along with several added creature comforts and an updated engine, the model receives significant exterior and interior changes. The manufacturer has also revamped the three-door variant of the SUV. The bookings for the all-new model are now open for a token amount of Rs 25,000. As for the launch, expect the Gurkha 5-door to arrive on our market by the first week of May. The 5-door will likely go on sale with prices starting at Rs 16 lakh (ex-showroom). Four colour options will be available for customers to choose from: Green, Red, White, and Black.

Force Gurkha 5-door: Styling Cues

The new Force Gurkha 5-door and its revised 3-door version have a nearly identical design. Both variants include a dual-slat grille with Gurkha lettering up front, circular LED headlamps with daytime running lights (DRLs), cornering fog lights, turn indicators positioned on the fenders, and a snorkel. The Gurkha 3-door's boxy shape and body lines appear to be retained by the 5-door model when viewed from the side, however, the latter has two more rear doors. In addition, the Gurkha has 18-inch alloy wheels with diamond cuts, massive wheel arches, and blacked-out door handles. The rear end features a roof rack, a spare wheel mounted on the tailgate, a tow hook, and vertically stacked LED taillamps.

Force Gurkha 5-door: Powertrain

Mechanically, Force has used the same 2.6-litre turbo diesel engine sourced from Mercedes-Benz, but it has been enhanced to produce 138bhp of maximum power and 320Nm of torque. This mill is coupled to a five-speed manual gearbox. Power is distributed to all four wheels via a low-range transfer case. Moreover, mechanical locking differentials on the front and rear wheels improve off-road performance.

The Gurkha 5-door's dashboard arrangement is mostly unchanged from the previous 3-door model. The additional row of seats and the redesigned upholstery are the only prominent changes to the cabin. The second row of the five-door Gurkha has bench seats, and the third row has captain seats. Later on, Force is probably going to offer the elongated Gurkha with a different seating arrangement.

Features-wise, the model has four power windows, a 7.0-inch digital driver's display, a manual air conditioner with rear vents positioned on the roof, and a nine-inch touchscreen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Other comforts come in the form of a second-row bench seat (5-door), an electronically controlled shift-on-the-fly four-wheel-drive selector, tilt and telescopic adjustable steering, an auto start-stop system, and powered OVRMs. 

To ensure passenger safety, the SUV includes a tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS), traction control, rear parking sensors, hill-hold assist, dual airbags, three-point seatbelts for all passengers, anti-lock braking (ABS), and electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD).
